Abstract


The middle-late Eocene to early Oligocene sediments, mainly limestone of the Soğucak Formation with its shallow water marine foraminiferal species occur most widespread in the territory of the Thrace basin. So far, the very shallow water Priabonian sediments with here described foraminiferal species have not been reported from Tharece basin. The here established Kazandere memeber of the Soğurcak Formation located between Kıyıköy andKömürköy,(NW of Kırklarel) was studied with respect to the sedimentologic as (microscopic and macroscopic), environmental and descriptive paleontology of the bentic foraminifers. Furthermore, the Eocene-Oligocene boundary in the new member defined first by the here described very shallow-water Priabonian and known shallow-water early Oligocene foraminiferal species.
